The Cadillac DPi-V.R Cars:

No. 5 Mustang Sampling
No. 10 Konica Minolta
No. 31 Whelen Engineering

Cadillac Racing debuted the all-new Cadillac DPi-V.R during the two-day IMSA pre-season test at Daytona, entering it into competition at the 2017 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona race.

 

The Cadillac DPi-V.R is propelled by a 6.2L V8 engine that shares inherent architecture with the engines of the third-generation Cadillac CTS-V (640 hp) and fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade (420 hp). The engine produces approximately 600 hp when tuned for racing as defined by IMSA-mandated air restrictors, with a maximum allowable RPM of 7,600.

 

The DPi-V.R features a distinctive Cadillac appearance and presence due to a vertical lighting signature; smoothly sculpted body and bold bodyside feature line; V-Performance wheels with Brembo brakes; and V-Performance emblems. The DPi-V.R is also equipped with the new Rear Camera Mirror first seen on the Cadillac CT6 Sedan and available on the Cadillac CTS, XT5 and Escalade for the 2017 model year.

 

For the 2017 endurance season, both Cadillac Racing teams – Wayne Taylor Racing and Action Express Racing – will drive DPi-V.R models, with WTR fielding a single car, the No. 10 Konica Minolta, and AXR making a two-car effort with the No. 5 Mustang Sampling and No. 31 Whelen Engineering cars.
